Back to oil painting for a while. I have four trees to paint for my altar. I renew the paints on this palette very very seldom, it takes ages to dry because in between each use, I place it in my freezer. My tubes will last me … years! This is my workbench. I paint on my lap: It is actually manageable. And out of reach from the dogs. I also have a small stand on the side for blending my colors. Save
I really suck at taking decent pictures of my artwork, I am truly terrible at this. I will try again when it’s hanging on the wall. This is a Soul Portrait of Lucy. I will make one for Pixie too, when she’ll be a bit older. There are 8 layers of cutouts and it’s painted with Cobra oils. I think it’s realistic enough because my dogs started barking at it. Silly girls ;-). And a little video: Save
I’m having a cosy day at home with Lucy and Pixie, while outside the rain’s falling continuously. I’ve finished my second painted cutout. It’s a topic which is dear to me: the island. It’s also a sanctuary, a place where you can truly be yourself, a cocoon, a chrysalis..You can of course get visitors but in the end, you are alone and … you are enough. Precious solitude in your own microcosms, entertained by your own inhabited depths. All is well.
